What is alox?!



ALOX refers to aluminium scales used on 93mm Swiss Army Knives (SAKs) like the one in the picture here. They can be anodized in different colors.

What is OHT?
I know for Vic it means Trailmaster/Trekker, but I heard the term for Leatherman as well..

Corwyn of Multitool, the First of His name, King of Victorinox, King of Leatherman, Gerber and the First Generation SOG, Lord of the Seven Wrenches, Protector of the Forum, Khal of the Bushes, called Corwyn Toolborn, the Unsharpened, Father of SAKs.

I was under the impression alox stands for Aluminum Oxide, but remember being told differently by a member on the forum. Cant remember who.

I need to know the truth. Someone please tell me.  :poh:

OHT is Leathermans answer to the flicky Gerbers. It stands for One Handopening Tool,as AFSIK all the tools open one handed

There is no beginning,or ending,and for this we are thankful,cos now is hard enough to understand!

This phrase was originally used referring to fuel consumption of cars, but now has a broader meaning more along the lines of:  "That is my experience in my context, your experience/situation may well be different".

Is any "powerful person" interested in updating post #1 in this thread ?  If they are, I can suggest a few more:

CE  Combo Edge (part-serrated, part plain knife blade)

PE  Plain Edge (knife blade)

SE  Serrated Edge (knife blade)

OHO  One Hand Opening (usually a knife blade but can be files etc)

OHT  Leatherman MT with "flicky" pliers
